I guess im not easily offended?

Certain things really bother me.
-People using the Lords name in vain.
-The use of the 'n' word.
-Racism and hatred towards people.
-The whole anti-gay thing. Im sorry, people should be allowed to love whomever they want.
-Animal cruelty. I will hit you with my car if i see an animal being mistreated.
-Wasting food. Call me a grandma, but their are starving kids in africa! Eat your damn sandwich or donate the rest.

But besides these few things, im not easily offended. I tend to be a go with the flow type person. It takes a lot to get me on my soapbox, but i dont hesitate to stand up for what i believe in.

This however, i almost find comical.. im sorry, im not sorry.

I mean.. wouldnt you almost feel like an ass wearing this costume? Its not offensive. No more so then someone dressing up as say, Hitler or Osama in my opinion.

This.. however, i find offensive. You might as well have "im a douche bag" written on your forehead.

And now i have written douche bag on my blog, and im almost offended....

**What offends you? What are things that should offend you, but dont?**

  2. Using the lords name in vain is a big pet peeve of mine too! Wasting food another one right up there. I spent a month volunteering in an orphanage in Ghana and hate the way people throw away food that could have been consumed.

    Other than that I'm not really bothered by much :)

  3. oh my, ya that last one is a douche bag. I remember someone going as dead Steve the crocadile hunter 2 weeks after his death, not classy at all. Very insensitive. But that woman's skeleton outfit, she's just askin for it.

  4. So many things offend my Christian sensibility. People cursing excessively, the word fag, most lascivious sexual talk and banter, excessive violence or sex in movies, etc.

    I get a weird unsettling feeling that is just so distictly a message from God that this displeases him. So I remove myself from the situation.

  5. Oh my gosh the "n" word! I hate that word! My kids in my class say it all rye time and justify it because they end it with an "a" rather than "ER." it is not ok, either way!!!
    I like getting to know you better!

  6. I completely agree with you on each of those things! I, myself, have to deal with the whole anti-gay thing so often because I am open about my sexuality now and it's amazing how many people are incredibly offensive and mean! I'm happier than I've ever been in my entire life but now am having to deal with the fact that people can't just accept that part of me. When people use the Lord's name in vain I'm also offended! Oh, and don't get me started on animal cruelty! I love animals so much and it breaks my heart to know that people abuse them! Another things for me is when I see children being abused in any way! They never deserve to be treated that way!

  7. I know a lot of people are just extremely close minded and nasty to homosexuals. In no way do I dislike those people, but because of my beliefs (I'm a Christian- like you are), I do not agree with their behavior. The Bible is very clear about homosexual relationships- it's black and white. And while it's not my place to judge them, as a Christian I cannot accept that or any other sinful behavior as okay. Unfortunately our society has made us think it is okay, that people are born that way, and we should all have the choice to love who we want. However, the Word tells us differently. A person may be born with tendencies (we are all born in to sin- a similar example is people with a tendency toward addictive behaviors), yet people make the choice whether they want to live in that sin or not. People are not "born" alcoholics. They choose to live that way. We still are called to love everyone, regardless of their choices, but homosexuality is a sin and Christians should take a stand against that the same way we take a stand against murderers, liars, thieves, abusers, etc. If we claim to be followers of Christ, that means we believe the Bible is TRUTH, and it is very clear about the kinds of relationships that are acceptable to our loving Lord.

    Just a thought....
